Three more properties have now been completed as part of SKDC’s £3 million council house building programme.

The two-bedroom bungalows in East Avenue, Grantham, are part of a two-year plan to create 33 new homes throughout South Kesteven. The construction work has been carried out by Lindum Group.

The re-named Marlstone Place on East Avenue is the second site to complete following the four homes at Egglestone House in Sandon Road, also in Grantham.

SKDC’s portfolio holder for good housing, Councillor Terl Bryant said he is thrilled with the project’s progress and the end result. He added: “These new properties are fantastic. I am really pleased with the finished product and hope that they will prove to be excellent homes for our residents..

“Housing is important to us as a council which is why we have our good housing priority. I look forward to seeing new tenants move in here and also at our other sites in Grantham and Stamford when they complete.”

In addition to the homes at East Avenue and Sandon Road, new homes will be provided at Thames Road in Grantham and Glen Crescent and Lincoln Road in Stamford, as part of the first phase of council house building.

All of the land being developed is council owned and made up of former housing and garage sites which have already been cleared of buildings. Designs include one, two, three and four bedroom flats, houses and bungalows to go into the council’s housing stock.

High energy performance is a key factor alongside providing affordable warmth for residents, and all properties should meet ‘Lifetime Homes’ standards which will make them suitable for tenants of all ages with ease of access for wheelchair users and those with a disability.
